Our food system is likely responsible for a third of global greenhouse gas emissions, yet Johns Hopkins University reports that of four thousand articles on climate change published in sixteen leading U.S. newspapers, only 1 percent had a “substantial focus” on food and agriculture.
In her recently released book, Diet for a Hot Planet, Anna Lappé says, “If we are serious about addressing climate change we have to talk about food.” Lappé will lead that conversation in Portland on Sunday April 18 where she will participate in a panel discussion, Food and the Climate Challenge: What You Can Do About It. This free event will also feature other area experts who will address how food affects our personal and environmental health and the simple steps we all can take to make a difference.
